Middle School

Adolescence can be a difficult time for both the child and parent. Holy Spirit strives to make that stage of life as smooth as possible for both parties by offering smaller class sizes and trained professionals. Research indicates that small class and school sizes create the optimum learning environment for adolescents.
 
Holy Spirit Middle School realizes the following major educational objectives:

  • To provide an academic environment in which each student's intellectual, emotional, social, aesthetic and physical growth are accompanied by a corresponding spiritual and moral growth.
  • To seek scholastic excellence through an emphasis on basic learning and critical thinking skills.
  • To nurture self-esteem and a sense of fulfillment while guiding each student into the maturity necessary to manage his or her own learning.
  • To cultivate in each child a sense of social and moral responsibility and genuine respect for others.

Students attend integrated language arts, math, science, history, Spanish and physical education classes daily in Middle School. In addition, students attend quarter-long classes in the performing arts, visual arts, Christian education, and technology. Local field trips, Ecolink trips, community service and the Costa Rica Cultural Exchange Program are an integral part of the curriculum. Students have leadership opportunities through Student Council, and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS).

The wonderful combination of a nurturing, safe, caring environment and our challenging curriculum prepares our students well. Holy Spirit is proud of the fact that its Middle School students are accepted in top-tier high schools in Houston and beyond.
